The Foreman Forecast: Sarah smiles…but not lately

Sarah is not smiling anymore. At least not so much. Remember when Sarah Huckabee Sanders started filling in for White House press secretary Sean Spicer?

The Foreman Forecast: 2020 launches

As horrifying, exhausting and depressing as it seems, the 2020 race for president has started. I know this because ‪Wednesday night President Trump hosted his first re-election fundraiser at his hotel here in D.C. I also know because the rivers are flowing backward, the sky grew dark...

Trump’s America: A desperate defense? It’s as easy as 1-2-3

First, blame the people who came before you. Then, swear you don’t recall. And if all else fails, just pretend that everything is fine. There we have it: the 1-2-3 punch of weak Washington defenses, which Team Trump gets to a T. From the Watergate break-in to the Russian-hacking probe,...

What happens when you threaten the president?

What happens when you threaten the life of the president of the United States? For Johnny Depp, we still aren’t sure. For Kathy Griffin, it cost her sweet New Year’s gig with Anderson Cooper. After Ted Nugent invited then-President Obama to “suck on my machine gun,” he...

The Foreman Forecast: See no, hear no

Picture the scene: a room full of eager folks on the edges of their seats. Eyes wide. Ears open. Waiting to heave questions – to see how hopes, plans, dreams, vendettas and more will collide and then – nothing. No pictures. No sound. Sounds like the end of "The Sopranos,"...
